    becoming good with an angle grinder just means you've got nothing better to do with your time.

    that ax would be excessively heavy and the edge, as it was shown in the video, isn't hardened. I'm sure it looks cool to some, but it looks like a big waste of time and effort to me.

    Trust me, I get using what you have to make what you want, but I guess I just don't want that. lol.
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    Amazing, he was able to do it without CAD drawings made on his home laptop making stencils on his home inkjet and transfer them to the steel without needing a CNC table to do the job.

    That ax is going to impress a lot of girls he can bring back to his pad or even mom's basement, till the cops confiscate the ax.
    Hopefully before the cops take it, one of the girls in the art room can tattoo it on his body.

    Will the UNION Shop Teacher give him an A for employing the only functioning tools in Shop or flunk him?

    You can also get pretty good while grinding out welds the boss doesn't like.
